September 2018

Day of Remembrance

Saturday, September 22, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Remembrance is a unifying force when the pain of separation is validated and shared. This special evening embraces both the sadness and wisdom that stems from the loss of a loved one. With carefully selected poetry and music, we will share a beautiful series of rituals designed to heal and restore. The evening will conclude with the lighting of memorial lanterns at sunset and launching them onto Valley Water, a glacial pond near Green-Wood’s historic chapel.

(SOLD OUT) The JACK Quartet: Modern Medieval

Monday, September 24, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The JACK Quartet were called “superheroes of the new music world” by The Boston Globe, and there could be no more apt description for this endlessly adventurous ensemble. They’ve played pieces completely in the dark, performed on a raft in the middle of a lake, and more. For The Angel’s Share, they will play an extraordinary program that follows a musical thread from medieval plainsong through to the present day, drawing sonic similarities from wildly divergent works and echoing the timelessness of the space surrounding them.

An event every month that begins at 6:30pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Tuesday, November 13, 2018

The Death Café is inspired by the centuries-old European salon (or café), an informal gathering to discuss philosophical, political or scientific ideas.

Underwood’s intention was to provide an opportunity to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” Today, there are over 4,400 Death Cafes in 26 countries around the world.

(Sold Out) Gregg Kallor: Sketches from Frankenstein (World Premiere)

Wednesday, October 10, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:30pm, repeating until Friday, October 12, 2018

Mary Shelly’s groundbreaking novel Frankenstein was published 200 years ago. But far from the grunting Hollywood brutishness of Boris Karloff, the original told the heartbreaking story of a living, feeling creature, brought into the world only to be forsaken by his creator and left to fend for himself in a hostile world. Drawing the parallels to modern society, pianist/composer Gregg Kallor will offer the World Premiere of a new suite of operatic sketches based on the monster’s harrowing tale, in a partnership with On Site Opera. The program will also feature his other acclaimed vocal works, and the premiere of a solo piano piece in tribute to Leonard Bernstein.
